Fox Orders Live-Action Comedy DADS from Seth MacFarlane, Alec Sulkin, and Wellesley Wild Straight to Series

     January 22, 2013


Pilot season is in full swing, but Fox is making a pretty bold commitment to a new series from Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane.  The network has decided to go straight-to-series with Dads, a multi-camera live-action comedy written and produced by Ted scribes Alec Sulkin and Wellesley Wild, with MacFarlane onboard as executive producer.  Fox has ordered six episodes of the new show based solely on a pilot script, so Sulkin, Wild, and MacFarlane must have knocked it out of the park.  Per THR, the series centers on “two successful guys in their 30s who have their lives turned upside down when their nightmare dads unexpectedly move in with them.”  The show should premiere this coming fall.

Sulkin and Wild have been longtime Family Guy writers and currently serve as executive producers on the hit animated comedy.  The two also co-wrote MacFarlane’s directorial debut Ted and are penning a live-action western comedy feature film that MacFarlane will star in and direct called A Million Ways to Die in the West.
